Tim Westwood Cancelled!

Tim Westwood has stepped down from his Capital Xtra radio show “until further notice” after sexual misconduct claims, the station’s parent company has said.

“Two of his forthcoming DJ sets in Birmingham and Bognor Regis have also been cancelled in light of the allegations.

The women accused Westwood of predatory sexual behaviour and touching, claiming he abused his position in the music industry to exploit them.

Two said he had initiated unwanted and unexpected sex, one claimed she was subjected to unwanted oral sex, and four accused the DJ of touching their bottoms or breasts.

The women who spoke to the BBC are all black, and said they met Westwood through his work. They told their stories in a BBC Three documentary, Tim Westwood: Abuse of Power.” – BBC

DJ Tim Westwood accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women

The renowned DJ Tim Westwood has been accused of sexual misconduct by multiple women who claim he misused his position in the music industry to take advantage of them.

Three women have accused the DJ of opportunistic and predatory sexual behaviour, while four others allege they were groped by him at events.

The women, who were in their late teens or early 20s when they say the incidents happened, described their experiences to the Guardian and BBC News as part of a joint investigation into the former BBC Radio 1 DJ.

The earliest alleged incident took place in 1992; the most recent in 2017.

One of the women said: “Someone taking advantage of my naivety and lack of confidence isn’t something that I should have to carry with shame.”

Westwood has strenuously denied all the allegations. A spokesperson said they were completely false and denied in their entirety.

On The Line – End of an Era: What’s next for BBC’s ‘The Rap Show’?


If you don’t know about BBC’s ‘The Rap Show’ on Radio 1 (and later 1Xtra) then where the hell have you been for the last 24 years? Personally I don’t want to know!

‘The Rap Show’ was birthed in late 1994 as a part of the BBC’s big shake up to attract a younger audience and Hip-Hop was an essential part of doing that!

The shows first host, Tim Westwood, joined the BBC, from Capital FM, to give it some authenticity as Westwood was one of the most respected Hip-Hop figures in the UK having close relationships with a number of big name US Hip-Hop artists and DJ’s.

For me personally ‘The Rap Show’ changed my life when I first heard it back in November 1999. The show I initially heard had Eminem, Proof and Paul Rosenberg killing it with some insane freestyles, prank phone calls and other madness from the Shady camp! From that moment I knew I was coming back the next week for more!

I followed the show religiously from ’99 to about 2005 but as the Hip-Hop landscape began to change (for the worse), and the shows host started to become a more publicly known character (more known for saying ‘baby’ a lot and less for his crazy knowledge of the culture he had been supporting for the previous 25+ years), the show started to lose the edge I had always been drawn too. It played nothing but wack commercial Hip-Hop as opposed to the raw, underground street music that would never break the UK Top 40 no matter how catchy the hooks were as it was just too damn grimy…and I loved it!

BBC Radio 1 Rap Show (01/09/2000) with Big Daddy Kane

However every now and again I would check the show as it still meant something to me! At the end of the day I wouldn’t be a part of the Hip-Hop culture if it wasn’t for Tim Westwood and the Rap Show! Hell, between 2010 – 2011, I listened every weekend when I had my daughter sleep over and truthfully the vibe was dope and made it worth listening too again! The urban landscape was in a different place from 5 years before and was pretty similar to the early 00’s that I had grown up on!

After that I didn’t listen again until Westwood’s last ‘Rap Show’ in September 2013 which, despite not being a great show, made me feel quite emotional because after all these years of listening, on and off, to this bigger than life DJ, holding it down every Saturday night, he was finally leaving after serving the BBC for the last 18 years (he resurfaced the following Saturday though on Choice FM which literally weeks later re-branded to Capital Xtra)! However his replacement, Charlie Sloth, in my opinion, was the best choice to continue the legacy of BBC’s ‘The Rap Show’. Charlie had the energy and enthusiasm to rock the show every Saturday night, and add his famed ‘Fire in The Booth’ segment to it as well, then Sloth, and the BBC, had a real winner!


I checked out Charlie’s first show, with Slaughterhouse and The Movement killing their respective ‘Fire in The Booth’ sets, and thought it was pretty dope for the new wave of Hip-Hop fans to get their weekly fix of all the latest commercial and underground bangers from the UK and US!

Just like Westwood’s later shows I listened to Sloth’s show every now and again, mostly to see which artist was setting the booth on fire that week, just to pretty much show some love to the UK’s premier rap show that made such an impact on me all those years ago!

However this year it was confirmed that after 5 years of hosting ‘The Rap Show’ Charlie Sloth was moving on and leaving the BBC (Charlie actually left a few weeks prior to his scheduled last show, on November 3rd, due to some controversy at the Radio Academy’s Audio and Radio Industry Awards).

With Sloth gone the show is currently off air with no announcement of a new host in sight (1Xtra’s Seani B is currently holding down the 9-11pm Saturday night slot) which currently leaves the question open for who is going to take over the famed rap show?

The DJ who will takeover not only has to have a great knowledge of Hip-Hop, and the culture, but also fill the boots left behind by Charlie Sloth and Tim Westwood! DAMN!!!

I’m hoping the BBC won’t just use this as a reason to abandon one of the most influential specialist shows in the history of British radio and they actually find a suitable replacement to carry ‘The Rap Show’ torch!

Watch this space!!!

Craig Mack – That’s My Word EP (DatPiff Stream)


DJ Tape Deck King has put together an 8-track EP of the late Craig Mack’s work, from the year 2000, that was inspired by an interview the rapper had on Tim Westwood’s Radio 1 Rap Show.

On the show Mack announced he was dropping an album that summer called ‘That’s My Word’ but it never came out.
